Good luck dude. Don't skip the 12/6/73 Here Comes Sunshine. Might be better post-op.

Hey S & R, I have to ask, since I know you're a Cavs fan--I came to this series really liking Lebron, and in no way rooting for the Magic...but here's the thing, and hope you won't take offense cause I am interested in feedback: the refs have made this a TERRIBLE series to watch...Howard cannot get a call, and Lebron gets them ALL.

Again, I have no axe to grind whatsoever, and I blame the refs entirely for this, but I thought I had it bad what with the lakers series (ie, my gripe about inconsistency with refs, etc.), BUT Cavs and Magic series is much worse.

Am I wrong? Have I just become a ref hater like my old man?

Buried this here cause I didn't want folks to get bored with more basketball!

I'd agree that LeBron gets the calls. Didn't see tonight's game, but I'd say that's pretty much been the case in the games I've seen. Looks like the Cavs are on their way out.

It was a tough one, and I may be over-reacting; just heard TNT guys saying the refs got some of the late calls I thought were bad "right" so...who knows. Kobe gets the calls too but I have just been frustrated with the touch fouls, the let them play noncalls, the call on every Lebron drive, the noncalls inside, elbows are flagrants, etc., etc.

I came to it rooting for the Cavs, but now I am just more and more irritated with the refs than anything...

"During the regular season, James averaged only 1.7 fouls per game while playing an average of 37.7 minutes. That's remarkable. He also received 22 first-place votes for defensive player of the year, an award that normally requires physical, aggressive play. Yet James never had more than four fouls in any of the 81 games he played during the regular season."

not even once!?!

recall when the nba refs were on strike and the replacement refs were actually making travelin' and other calls on the stars...that was GREAT!!!...some of the stars might even have been calling the union to get them to end the strike...

but that was at least a decade ago and the true charade has gotten worse and not better...

funny, even though the tim dognaghy stuff was contained I thought that the nba would hear some of the fan's outrage regarding the level of referring and that improvements would be made. guess not...at least I am saving $$$...
